iPad 2 Jailbreak Still Under Development

by on May 6th, 2011

This morning, the Dev Team released updates for PwnageTool and redsn0w.

The new updates enable users to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 on the following devices: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 (GSM), iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G, iPad1 and AppleTV 2G (v4.3;8F202).

Missing from the list, again, is the iPad 2.

The Dev Team posted the following iPad 2 update this morning:

The iPad2 jailbreak remains under development. As you may know, the original exploit @comex developed in the first week of the iPad2 release was mysteriously fixed by Apple within days of its development. Partly because of this, don’t expect much public discussion of the iPad2 jailbreak until it’s actually finished and ready for release (and please avoid asking about it). In all liklihood, it will be a userland exploit like the first (unreleased) one, not dependent on bootrom dumps. The first one can’t be released even for those with the original 4.3 firmware due to legal (distribution) reasons.

For those with an iPad 2 who have been patiently waiting, it looks like a little more waiting is in order.

    Do you think it’s safe to upgrade my iPad 2 to 4.3.3? I’ve been on 4.3.0 since launch but would like to upgrade for some of the bug fixes, such as facetime freezing and battery drain. Since they are not releasing the original 4.3 jb, I assume you will not need to have your 4.3 SHSH blobs available. Whenever they have a jb it will be for whatever the latest iPad 2 fw is. What do you guys think?

    I’d stick with the original firmware as when they release it, you’ll have 100% compatibility. I wouldn’t risk it but if you really need the bug fixes and what not, i dont think 4.3.3 would do anything as it didn’t do anything to the iphone’s.

    I’m sticking with my original (4.3.0) until they release it.

    same, I kept mine at 4.3. I just got a new replacement iPad from the apple store, and that’s at 4.3.1.
